Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Tales from the Crypt 6.7778/AOP.999qpre567 Great Crowd Reactions

On 10.9.89 in Hampton VA - The Dark Star break-out show...
After the Attics of My Life encore, the lights stayed down for a minute or two. When the house lights came up, the entire crowd gave a tremendous cheer that seemed to go on forever (probably just a minute or two though). I still remember it now. I was on the floor and looking around at all the people just screaming their heads off. No one was cheering hoping the band would come back out - It was an acknowledgement of the incredible show we had just seen. That was one of the most moving moments in all the shows I saw. It still "makes the hair stand up". Just writing this gives me chills. It was really special.
